$225.00

The “Les Caillerets” leaps out of the glass with explosive mineral tones, orchard fruit and charred quince.

Joseph Colin initially trained at Domaine Marc Colin, working alongside his brother, Pierre-Yves, to make the family wines. In 2016, Joseph decided to create his own Domaine, and, subsequently, inherited just over six hectares of vineyards from his family holding, representing about nineteen different appellations, to start his exciting new venture. "Les Caillerets" 1er Cru is from a 0.36-ha vineyard with vines ranging from 40 to 100 years old. Six barrels were produced in 2018.

The bouquet leaps out of the glass with explosive mineral tones, orchard fruit and charred quince.The palate has ripe and juicy white stone fruit and driven citrus notes, and a superbly long mineral finish. It can be paired with roast poultry, rich oysters, crayfish, scallops and white fish. You can drink it now with a 30-minute decant before serving or cellar it up until 2025+. 100% Chardonnay.

"Coming Soon."

Only healthy grapes make it to the press; the wines are also handled as little as possible, therefore there is no bâttonage, filtration or fining and no sulphur is used during the winemaking process until racking where minimal amounts are used. Fermentation and maceration is processed in 350-litre oak barrels for 12 months, before three months in stainless before bottling.
